  1. Hi Shefali,
    This is a good summary about your volume. In addition, for this blog, we asked you to reflect on how you analyzed your sources and constructed your aboutness statements. What was easy about the process? What was difficult? What are the possible implications from the way you described the Patrol Reports? How might technology change the use of the reports over time, e.g. microfilm vs. online access?
